No matter who wins, America will lose.
November 8 is decision day. Americans will choose who will be the next president of the United States: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. There has never been an election cycle like this one. More than half of Americans dislike both candidates. The lies, insults, scandals and childish behavior of both candidates have been suffocating.
Trump promises to “Make America Great Again!” Clinton promises to unify America with her slogan, “Stronger Together.” Yet both sides claim that if their candidate doesn’t win, it will spell disaster for America. Some label Trump as a fascist; some label Clinton as a criminal. Yet one of these two individuals will become the next president of the world superpower. Tensions are high, and disaster seems to be building on the horizon.
Democracy seems to be broken. The many processes that have elected capable leaders in the past seem to have failed us. The future of America hangs in the balance.
There is an untold story of Election Day 2016. While America and the world focus on what America will be after the election, they are ignoring what America is now. President Barack Obama has changed this nation. America has been under attack for eight years. Whoever inherits the White House will preside over a radically transformed United States.
